Re: “Arkansas Komen affiliate wants reversal of Planned Parenthood decision

The financial statements for Komen National at the link listed in the comment above were misread. Total program expenses totaled $333,734,419 - this included research, public health education, screening and treatment. Total fundraising and administrative totaled $75,243,408. That means fundraising and overhead are 18% of the expenses. 82% went to mission.

Re: “Arkansas Komen affiliate wants reversal of Planned Parenthood decision

We would like to correct something that is mentioned in several of the comments. The Komen Foundation and its affiliates are required to keep administrative costs at 25% or below. Locally we are at about 21%. That means that we actually give to mission almost 80 cents of every dollar. Of this money, 75% is kept in Arkansas to fund services, education, screening and treatment. The 25% that is sent to our national office, is spent only for research grants to find new treataments and to working to find a cure for breast cancer. None goes to national overhead.
